The inspirational dynamics of Venus moving into an exuberant, mind-and-heart enhancing,72-degree liaison with Jupiter (6:09AM) may not last long as yesterday’s lengthy void lunar cycle in Libra lumbers along until the Moon enters Scorpio at 11:37AM.
In addition, the feisty red planet Mars decides to enter one of its two traditional home signs — Scorpio — at 6:34AM. This means that the Moon and Mars are making their monthly conjunction at 11:52AM while also forming a parallel at 11 degrees south of the Celestial Equator at 10:23PM. When Mars is this wound up — via its zodiacal location and association with the strongly sensitive-psychic Moon — it is easy for usually straight-forward communications, actions, and gestures to go awry. Therefore, steer clear of temperamental souls and anyone prone to mischief-making. Use words to support dear ones — not to castigate or critique them.
A moderate involvement with exercise routines and athletics may provide an outlet for reducing tensions across the board. Be aware that Mars will remain in the willful, hypnotic, and research-strong sign of Scorpio until March 5, and then after Mars begins a retrograde cycle in Sagittarius on April 17, Mars will once again inhabit the eighth sign of the zodiac from May 27 to August 2.
